Match Prediction and Analysis
The 33rd match of IPL 2020 will be played between the “Royals”; R. Royals and Royal CB at Dubai International Stadium on Saturday, October 17th, 2020. Both teams have already met each other in the 15th match of the current edition of IPL, where RR was failed to set a good total and ended their inning on just 154 runs for 6 wickets. That was easily chased by the first four batsmen of RCB.
When we look at their head to head games of IPL history, on one is on the higher side as RR has won 10 matches out of 22 and lost 9 matches from RCB with 3 ended no results. In their upcoming game, both teams will play under pressure as both have lost their last game. RR has to win this game if they want to remain in the battle of IPL 2020.
According to stats and my calculations, RCB is going to win this match and that will be an intense fight between these two teams. RCB is in good form and can beat RR but it will not be an easy fruit for them.
Both teams are no doubt in a very good fashion and have the potential to beat their competitor. When we talk about RR, the opening four batsmen; Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Steve Smith, and Sanju Samson are playing very well and all the batting performance of their team is very much dependent on the performance of these players. In the bowling, Jofra Archer is doing very well and has sent 12 players back to the pavilion in 8 matches. Shreyas Gopal and Rahul Tewatia are a little bit supporting Jofra Archer as both got 5 wickets in this tournament.
RCB lineup is quite in the form in this season. From their opening batsmen to their bowling attack, everyone is contributing to the team performance. Although some of their foreign players like Adam Zampa and Dale Steyn are not in their best form and still struggling for their position in playing 11 even after half of the season passed. At the start of the tournament, the team is underperforming due to their weak bowling attack but after the entry of Chris Morris “The Death Overs Specialist”, this deficiency of RCB is very much covered.
This battle between RR and RCB is going to be conducted at Dubai International Stadium. The venue is not known for batting side as the average first inning score at this venue is just 152 which IPL teams think as an easy target to chase. Almost 80 T20 matches are already played on this pitch and stats clearly show that the pitch advantages team playing second.
Toss is always considered a crucial part of the game, especially when it is being played at Dubai International Stadium. The Decision of Steve Smith, Captain of RR, will be very much dependent on the matchday weather and pitch report. While Virat Kohli, Captain of RCB, loves to chase.
It is being predicted that both teams will choose to bowl after winning the toss for their game on October 17th, 2020.
